HLS August CAS Challenge

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

Here is my card -

You may remember a tutorial I created showing you how to use your mica powders to watercolour? I used Pearl Ex powders to colour in my flowers from the HLS Especially for You set which I had embossed in gold. I die cut my sentiment in a gold mirror cardstock keeping with my gold theme. Watercolouring with these powders give my images a gorgeous shimmer!

Here is my tutorial just in case you missed it -
